The caller told police that her son 18-year old Jace McKinney of Dubois was huffing duster at the park and was concerned about his health and welfare.

Police say an extensive search for McKinney was conducted in and around the Bohnert Park area before finding an empty can of duster in the area he was believed to have been illegally inhaling the substance.
